    Yesterday I finished the kitchen facelift of painting the cabinets, all woodwork, and replacing five doors. "She who must be obeyed" is very pleased, as this has been on her wish list for longer than I care to admit. Here are some before & after pics.

    My SIL played football for University of Connecticut until he blew out a knee. Some say he was destined for the NFL, but thankfully he stayed in school and got a masters in finance and a great career. Since the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I wonder if my grandson is walking in...

    Just got an email from Lollie, and she says JoeC is going through some serious health issues right now, and is in the hospital. I'll refrain from letting out the details here without his permission, but suffice to say they are quite serious. He is not a religious or spiritual man, but some...

    Festival Foods

    Here's some of the food from the festival kitchen this past weekend. Over the weekend I prepped chickens & ribs, and did all the stove work for pierogis, cavatellis and corn-on-the-cob, as well as cleanup at the end of the evening. I NEVER want to own a restaurant!
